How long before the Democrats blame this on George Bush‘s reluctance to sign the insane Kyoto Pact?
Jupiter’s Massive Winds Likely Generated From Deep Inside Its Interior, Scientists Report
A new computer model indicates Jupiter’s massive winds are generated from deep within the giant planet’s interior, a UCLA scientist and international colleagues report in the journal Nature.

Jupiter’s powerful winds are very different from those on Earth. They continually circle the planet, and have changed very little in the 300 years that scientists have studied them. Massive east-west winds in Jupiter’s equatorial region reach approximately 340 miles per hour — twice as rapid as winds generated by strong hurricanes on Earth. At higher latitudes, the wind pattern switches to alternating jets that race around the planet.

And, by the way, mankind is not the cause of Global Warming.
